What In Fact is Cloud Hosting?
Actually, the actual cloud hosting platform serves individual website hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of top-quality servers. Each single service set constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The enormous cloud web hosting swindle. Very modern these days.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is highly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the website hosting business there are no laws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such legislative institution. This is why the hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of web servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting company to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, for setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, a lot of cash has to be invested as well. Tons of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense defect.
The absence of open source cloud hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (working with the cloud website hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you must make one. In-house. Secondly, you must create the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Contemporary website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on one single server solely. All web hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these particular single-server hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to make an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Proper examples of custom built cloud website hosting solutions with in-house constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at ORDIBEC, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment expenses
The smallest contribution wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
